PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This 3 page mini-lesson teaches the tall tale of the sea captain, A.B. Stormalong and gives your students creative writing opportunities. On the first page there are 6 questions which pose various problems that would occur if A.B. Stormalong would visit a school. In writing answers to the six questions, students explain how each problem would be solved. On the second page is a chart of 5 criteria for writing tall tales along with a drawing of Stormalong. Finally, the third page gives a story starter about old Stormalong meeting the grand-daddy of all storms as he sails on his ship, the "Courser." Students are asked to finish the story using the 5 criteria that was provided on page two of the lesson. A second drawing of Stormalong on his ship is included here. Students can complete the 6 questions and tall tale ending individually or in a cooperative learning group, such as a Think-Pair-Share. The lesson is a word document that you can easily reproduced and modified if necessary. Originally, this was a one page lesson, but on December 21, 2015 I had the next 2 pages and an additional drawing.
